I should really have brought my camera with me to show how crazy we get when we finally leave "winter" mode and SLAM into garden mode here in the Great White North.
I haven't even said anything about the speed of delivery from plant mail order companies yet.
Here is a picture of just a few things I don't really need but managed to pick up anyways ... and this isn't showing the "whole" picture which includes triple mix soil, potting soil, fertilizer, bone meal .... do you count how we take care of our Goldfinches .... a 50 pound bag of Niger seed plus another copper accented Goldfinch feeder ?
Speaking of relaxing ... sweet husband got the basalt water feature connected and running while I was out in the madness of gardeners let loose ! .. the finches now have two feeders on the go with a solar powered bird bath and the main water feature bubbling away with it's calming sound of running water.
The bad part ? ... I have a TON of "start up" work to do in my gardens .. weeding .. moving of plants .. quick on the fly redesigning of beds ... did I mention the need to dump triple mix soil on said garden beds?
I haven't even gotten to the compost and mulch deal yet.
It is a crazy time ... so I might not even surface for a while .. each day I do garden work .. well, I pay for it dearly physically ... but I am willing to because I love my gardens so much .. the pleasure most times is worth the pain.
Mean while some pretty pictures ...
One good thing I have learned, is an easy front entrance plant from last year .. a not so plain fern that "cools" that aspect of our home .. I am very serious about trying to make things easier and this does!
Meanwhile some pretty plants and a bird or two?
